Candy Corn Wreath

Finally a craft just for me to do!!  As soon as I received my Women’s Day magazine and saw this Candy Corn Wreath on the cover I knew that I had to make my own.  And I am so glad that I did I love how it came out and it was so much fun and yummy to make too :0)

Not only was this wreath fun to make, but it was really easy too!

All you need is a 16 inch Styrofoam wreath (at least that is the size that I used), black duct tape, hot glue gun and about 2 bags of candy corn and a large ribbon ( I used a black one).  

First wrap the wreath in the black duct tape then glue the candy corn around the wreath.  I laid them out before I started to see how they would fall.  I found it best to begin at the top where the ribbon would be covering so that if the candy corn didn’t line up perfectly the ribbon would cover it. (You can click on the link at the top of my post for the complete directions from Woman’s Day)

To preserve it they recommend drying out the candy corn before you begin, however if you are in to much of a rush to make this and display it (like I was) they also said that you can dry the candy corn out on the wreath and then use Modge Podge to cover the entire thing, just make sure you remove the ribbon before you start :0)

This magazine is sitting on my desk right now. I want to make the wreath too. I'm glad it's easy; I'm not very good at crafts that are meant for anyone older than 8!

I bought that very same magazine the other day!! My only problem is that I would eat all the candy corn before it would even make it to the wreath!! ;-)

Great job! It looks fabulous!
